A new fireplace is installed and my wife is redecorating , so this was a chance to change the orientation 90 degrees and place speakers in the longest wall. Tried that before with success but on opposite wall. Initial impression is good. Tomorrow I have to remeasure and calibrate the Trinnov to the new orientation.
This is how pink noise looks like in Audio Tools ( perfekt pink=flat horisontal Line )

Edit: here is why the speakers had to move…

Bass from the sub is supplemented by a pair of buttkickers powered by a class D Monoprice amp. All the amps in this 5.2.4 setup are now class D (Fosi V3, Aiyima A07, Monoprice), and the amp inside the SVS PB3000.

I added some wheels to my stuff yesterday, cleaned dust as well and integrated the new (to me) Yamaha NP-S2000:
Nice collection of an all Yamaha rig.
I got casters under all my racks so I can roll them out for wire service etc.
Otherwise what else can you do that isn't a huge hassle ?

TV is 65"... just right for the room size and my viewing distance which is ~7.5 feet.
Kool, I guess it's just the angle of the photo the makes it look larger.
Thanks

@cyclo, What speakers are you using for front left & right?
Front speakers are 30 plus year old Infinity Modulus monitors... They still sound great and image really well. My rear surround speakers are also 30 plus year old bookshelves (Canton).

This is my thing.

The music I listen to is mainly pink noise and REW sweeps, and very very very occasionally rock music.

Extra bonus: this is my cat Mephistopheles (aka Satan) acting as Wally and bass trap.

Where is Wally?

He hates REW sweeps, but loves CAT Stevens' music.

Main Setup:
Audio Physic Virgo III speakers - good speaker positioning thanks to priceless tips by Joachim Gerhard, burosch.de, Roland Hoffmann
Musical Fidelity m3i (still missing a good POWER amp - Apollon? Audiophonics?...) - integrated amp
SMSL d-6s - dac (thanks to @amirm) - wow, a game changer
Musical Fidelity m3cd - cd-player
Cambridge Audio Duo - preamp (again, muchas cudos to our main man @amirm)
Thorens 145 MK II + ortofon stylus 40 - record player
NAD C440 - analogue tuner - yes, we still enjoy classic radio ;-)
Sony TC-KE 500 S - tapedeck - for old times sake
Klipsch R 112 SW - subwoofer on self-made MDF (+ absorbers) stand (thanks to an extremely helpful tip by "acoustic fields" - brought a super clean bass, and the neighbours don't lament any more!)
Inakusik Referenz Power Station AC-3500P (not that bad)...
Inakustik ls-803 speaker cables, Wireworld Eclipse cinch cables, Wireworld and Supra power cables (for those who still believe in the quality of good cables ;-))
E-Pluggs and AHP fine fuse
Designed and made the wall racks myself V

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Beautiful cozy-looking room :) I'm sure it sounds amazing! Congrats on a beautiful setup. I really like the stands holding your gear, are those DIY?
